I have been teaching and coaching for a total of 12 years now.  I coached football for 1 year at Charles Henderson in Troy Alabama.  Then from there I moved to Houston TX, where I coached football and taught PE for Aldine ISD for 3 years.  Moved back home to Alabama and landed a job with Smiths Station.  I was offensive line coach for Wacoochee Middle School (Smiths Station), and Head Girls Softball Coach.  I also taught keyboarding.  I stayed there for 1 year.  From there I followed Coach Grider to Coosa Central in Coosa Alabama.  I taught K-12 PE, Coached Varsity Football (Running Backs), and became the Head Powerlifting Coach before I left.  From there I followed Coach Grider once again to Beauregard High School.  I taught my first 3 years at Beauregard at Sanford Middle and Coached only at the High School.  The last 3 years I have been here at the High School full time teaching PE/Health and coaching Varsity Football (Running Backs), and Varsity Softball.  I really love being here at Beauregard and I love the community.
